We wanted to start a landscaping business that would Stand behind and perform what we promised to do. We had found that many French drain Tulsa companies would over promise and under perform with a lack of landscaping knowledge and experience in the current market.Tulsa, OKlahoma is in a unique climate area for planting plants. There is not one planting zone that you can say we are in. So We decided to take our company to the next level and find and design landscapes that fit in our growing seasons, with a low maintenance and High success rate of survival. While incorporating all your outdoor living dreams! So we founded OUTSIDE INC.
